Coco, how I love you. Let me count the ways. You took three hours to turn from fabric to flattering dress. You were tremendously easy to sew, even though you are in a stretchy knitted fabric. You can be styled a number of different and exciting ways. You pull on over my head in a relaxed and easy manner, yet are still more than smart enough for a day in Nursery. Your instructions are beautifully illustrated and super easy to follow, and even a total wally can set in a sleeve and put a funnel neck on - new skills! You also caused me to learn where the zigzag stitch was on my sewing machine, and how to lengthen it to allow for more stretch.
Awkward much? I properly hate having my picture taken.
Anyway, new dress! In a day! I love, love, love, it so much. I'm now thinking about a similar dress in blue or red, and a top with green and white stripes, or a hacked Coco pattern with red yoke and sleeves and spotty skirt. And, and, and. I got my fabric from Tissu Fabrics, in case you're interested, or thinking of making your own; they are cheap and send stuff out quickly. I'll probably be putting in an order for more this very evening.
